is now an island. there is also now the concern that conedison the local utility has raise that had they may have to do preemptive power outages, if it looks like some of the low-lying areas are going to flood to protect the underground equipment. they would do power outages, so so much for the utility of having utilities and elect call wires under a ground. that can be an issue as well when storm surges rise. we'll be back with more as our special coverage goes on. guys, back to you. >> thank you so much, scott. that's why we have so many issues with the exchange. that's the neighborhood where the new york stock exchange is. back to the dramatic picture in midtown manhattan, a construction hanging from a skyscraper. robert frank is live in new york city with more on that. robert? >> reporter: thanks, guys. well, i'm standing on 57th and 8th, just a couple of blocks from where this crane is hanging like a giant sword over midtown manhattan. here's what we know so far. at approximately 2:45 today the boom of that crane was blown over the cab, over the top and is now hanging over the

surprised yesterday to learn that mitt romney was talking about tax policy to a local denver, colorado station where he essentially unveiled a new program with more details. he said his 20% tax cut would only allow $17,000 worth of deductions. if you have $17,000 bucket of deductions, that's all you're going to get and by the by it may even be a small are bucket for upper income people who are going to get a big tax cut. now, let me ask you, why then? why yesterday? why this local denver station? why didn't you all come out and first of all tell me first and, second of all, why didn't you tell the rest of the world you were finally putting meat on the bones of the tax reform plan? i don't get it. >> look, let me set you state on this. first of all, governor romney has a very bold tax plan that's designed to achieve more economic growth and lower the burden on middle-class taxpayers. as part of lowering those rates across the board, he believes we have to broaden the base. he talked about this as an illustrative example of some of the discussions that we're going to have. you obviously

'm looking right at the sheet. government -- federal, state and local was only up 10,000. look, i know obama is going to crow about it. any president would crow about he needed some good news after getting walloped and having his clock cleaned at the debate. but my other point, jack -- >> larry, wait a minute, let me make one point. i've been reviewing businesses all week, 14 of them, okay, and not one of them is showing stronger growth in the third quarter than they did in the second. some are equal to the second, some are a little worse than the second. the economy was revised down in the second. it's implausible that you could be running at a 5% gdp growth rate, which is what these numbers are implying. >> the nonfarm payroll number was lousy. you're right about that. the nonfarm payroll and private sector numbers, 114,000 and 104,000 were lousy so i agree with that point. i want to challenge you on one other point, okay? the isms for manufacturing and services both outperformed. now they're walking back to the mid 50s. that shows better growth. maybe even 3% growth. car sales at 15 milli
dollar limit, for example, on charitable deductions and health care deductions and state and local tax deductions, and if you put a dollar limit on that, grover, you make a bloody fortune at the upper end, so their tax rates at the margin would come down but their deductions would be lost. that would balance it in a revenue neutral way, and i'm going to throw in economic growth, grover. that will get to you 4% xhieconc growth which throws off -- >> we've been there, larry. >> the economic growth is the most important part. what we have with obama, if obama had had the kind of growth that reagan did from the bottom of the recession, there would be 10 million more americans at work. >> it's a very different recession. >> 10 million americans not working because obama spent money and raised taxes rather than -- >> a very different recession. the collapse of the housing bubble. >> dean, i don't want to go through the housing bubble. >> i don't want to either, but we did. >> the housing bubble is not going to come up for debate. i'm stick together debate tonight, and joe biden has been out
